The New York Times headline caught my eye:
"Donald Trump's Draft Deferments: Four for College, One for Bad Feet"
and, despite myself, I grinned with sudden clarity. Oh, ho, I thought.
I'm so not interested in his avoiding the draft. Nor am I the least bit surprised. It seems par for the course for his "I'm too special for that," whatever that is in his oh, so special brain.
No, the thing that grabbed me was "bad feet."
I know that probably makes little sense to you, but hear me out. I spent seven years as a medical intuitive working with 20 doctors healing chronic diseases that patients had been told could not be cured.
Well, they could but with a completely different approach than standard allopathic medicine, but that's a story for another day.
Back to the Donald's feet.
Of course he has bad feet, said my brain. Of course!
Every part of the human body carries a mystical or symbolic meaning. Most people don't think of it, but we medical intuitives do.
Feet represent understanding.
Because they, uh, stand under us all the live long day.
In fact, all the live long days of our lives.
Now, why do I say, Of course, the Donald has bad feet.
Because he is sorely lacking in understanding ... of anything of anyone, of anywhere that is different from what he wants reality to be.
The Hebrew Bible contains a lovely piece of advice in Proverbs 4:7:
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding.
Sad, sad, sad to say, but Mr. Trump is lacking on both counts. Wisdom hasn't yet touched his unreal, alleged take-charge attitude, and he seems to understand very little except how well outrage plays in the media. And that, he's acing.
But where is the wisdom required to be the leader of the free world?
Where is the understanding that is vital in dealing with the domestic and international issues that face us as a nation?
His bad feet give him away with those who have eyes to see, and ears to hear.
Mr. Trump, do you want to have better feet?
Sit down, take a load off, shut your mouth, and listen. God willing, you could learn something.
